Vitax Fruit Tree Grease 200gm


Vitax Fruit Tree Grease


The tree trunk is the main thoroughfare for many pest attacks, but fruit and other trees can be protected with Fruit Tree Grease.

Providing a simple and effective means of monitoring pest activity, Fruit Tree Grease stops pests in their tracks by preventing them climbing the trunk.

Containing rapeseed oil, Fruit Tree Grease stops pests such as the Winter Moth and the Mottled Umber Moth which invade fruit trees from late October to early December. It also protects against the March Moth which invades early spring.

For fruit tree grease to be fully effective a complete barrier must be formed. Choose a suitable position on the trunk at least 45cm (18”) above ground level but below the lowest branch and remove any loose bark. Using a stiff brush or spatula, form a ring approximately 10cm (4”) wide around the girth of the tree making sure that the tree grease is worked into any cracks or crevices. Replenish if necessary to maintain stickiness.

Note: Choose a different position each year for the ring of grease. If applying to young trees, apply the grease to a paper band wrapped tightly around the trunk.
